Cblogs of 01/13/2010 + Sykisms


Recaps are a little late due to my shitty router not letting my computer onto the internet for an hour.

This is a link to Jonathan Coulton's greatest hits album on Spotify (Europe only). You're welcome. Unlike SOME ARTISTS he hasn't pulled his music from the service. Plus he's totally better than those jumped up pricks.

I also want to put an idea to you, with Dtoid officially down to just 1 podcast and the community podcasts trickled down to 1 as well (it's a little sad when Failcast is the last man standing) would anyone here be interested in a DtoidUK podcast?

Also it's totally my birthday on Monday. I'll be 21, scary thought.

* - When Niero says you're on a roll, you're on a fecking roll
* - Great article about why games are not art
* - How to use a Dtoid Google Group, like the cool sexy kids (ie: DtoidUK) use

S - Tales from just watching someone else play

N - It's Trogday, so an episode of the abysmal Strong Bad game is free
T - A bit of a text wall here but some decent thoughts on PC kart racer Zero Gear (think a lightweight ModNation Racers)
T - Star Trek Online: Day 1
T - Damn, Agius got on the FFXIII party bus and gives us some thoughts on the game's 'Paradigm Shift' battle system
V - New No More Heroes Paradise trailer, also an incredible call

F - I hereby promise that the next fail-free day will be rewarded/punished with photos of me doing some male nerdcore.
F - An entry for Jim's Darksiders contest, but supreme embed fail
F - Also, Ewoks
F - A copy-pasta press release is not a blog, especially if you're quoting yourself in it
